Pokemon's famous TCG World Championships traveled to Washington, D.C. for their 2019 event, taking place between August 16-18, pitting the best players in the game against each other across all age ranges.
The tournament saw some big victories, with Henry Brand scooping the elusive Masters Divison title, Kaya Lichtleitner taking top spot in the Senior Division, and Haruki Miyamoto crowned the Junior champion.
During the awards ceremony on the final day of play, Isaac Terceira from the United States stepped up to pick up his award for making it to the finals, but what should be a memorable moment for all of those involved quickly turned sour as the trophy completely fell apart in his hands.
